We have been out of stock of the lightweight boom arm, this caused the 3 head continuous lighting and 3 head video lighting kits to be out of stock, well now it’s back. The 3 head redhead lighting kit and all the 3 head softbox lighting are all now back in stock. The very popular 3 head supersoftbox kits can now be ordered again take a look at Gavin Hoey’s video on them Super Sofbox Continuous Lighting Kit Overview.
A grey backdrop you may ask what use is it, well the grey backdrop is the most versatile photographic backdrop you can get. You can obviously keep it grey but you can also make it black, would you believe that you could also make it white and if you can make it white then you can make it any colour you like.
Don’t believe me just look at this video, as if by magic Gavin Hoey uses our grey cotton muslin backdrop to do just that, he is using strobist techniques and our strobist softbox but the same technique can be used with any photography lighting including continuous lighting and studio flash .
We also have Gavin Hoey videos in our Tutorial category

We would like to say a big thank you, our Video lighting has been depleted and the stock we had expected to last to the end of April has sold out. We still have stocks in our video lighting and continuous lighting categories with plenty of stock of the quad light the lightbank 350 and redhead lighting. A new shipment of out of stock items does not arrive until 19th April, we do apologise for this and will be increasing our stock holding to keep up with demand with shipments arriving monthly.

We have just received a shipment of cotton muslin backdrops so have plenty in stock including Chromakey Blue, Chromakey Green, White, Black, Grey in 3 sizes 8 x 12 ft, 8 x 16 ft and 10 x 20 ft. Not forgetting Chromakey green popup and the black and white popup backgrounds.

We now have in stock a black and white 100% cotton muslin popup background 150 x 200cm, they are black one side and white the other. This is ideal for use around the studio as a background but actually is great if you are on the move as it packs down into its own 70cm diameter bag.
Its at home for use with studio flash or video lighting, it is also useful as a large white reflector. The black side can be used to kill light in fact acts as the reverse of a reflector.
